Thank You

Hello and a happy ANZAC Day to you - for those not familiar with ANZAC Day it commemorates primarily the landing at Gallipoli of Australian and New Zealand troops now 101 years ago and how since then the two nations have stood side by side in many battles and we are thankful for all of the people who served then and are today as well. There are dawn services in both countries and also Gallipoli and a few other places including France. It's a solemn morning and then in the afternoon there is always a game of footy to cheer for!

Continuing the thankful theme - I have a card today that was made recently for a lovely friend. This is a Case of a card by Amy K. I changed a couple of things and added a few more details - aiming to put my own stamp on it - yes a terrible pun if I do say so myself :-)

The main pink flower is made using two of the blooms - both stamped off first in Melon Mambo and then full strength for the details.

And a liberal dose of  Wink of Stella is applied both to the large flowers and the butterfly for a bit of after dark sparkle.

Card stock: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Garden Green, Mometo Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Garden in Bloom, Suite Sayings
Accessories: Triple Banner Punch, Basic rhinestones, Silver Metallic thread, Wink of Stella

Thanks for stopping by today :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
